Neo-Confederate activist Janet Spainhour Pate was fired from her job after a video circulated online of her making racist comments.
Pate worked for the Koury Corp, a real-estate development company in North Carolina, according to The Triad City Beat.
Pate was outspoken about the removal of UNC-Chapel Hill Silent Sam Confederate monument. During the removal, Pate went live on social media and spewed racist language.
“There you go, Y’all,” Pate said. “All these years that sat there and then some ni**er comes up and spreads paint all over it, and the liberals go mad.”
Pate continued, “So you can see all these little whores at UNC, queers, celebrating, taking pictures. I guess they don’t have to go to class. Like I say, it’s easy to go to class here. They can stay up all night, get drunk, screw around, have abortions.”
The video went viral online and Pate’s workplace was identified. The video reached more than 32,000 viewers. Once her job caught wind of the video and the use of her racist language she was fired.
Koury Corporation released this statement about the situation.
“Koury Corporation does not condone racism, hatred or bigotry of any kind,” the statement read. “It is unfortunate and misleading that the Koury Corporation name and logo has been associated with this disturbing behavior. We have already taken appropriate personnel action in response to the activities of this one employee, and we remain focused on the positive contributions Sthaour nearly one thousand employees make in our community every day.”
WATCH: Spike Lee tears into Trump for empowering white supremacy
On Tuesday, director Spike Lee talked with CNN's Anderson Cooper about race, slavery, and President Donald Trump — and pulled no punches on any of it.
"I think that most woke historians would say that this country, the United States of America, was built upon the genocide of people and slavery. I mean, that's a fact," said Lee. "And I think that if we Americans came to study how this country started, we wouldn't be talking about kick immigrants out, you know, because if it wasn't — I mean, Native Americans, people brought here as slaves, everyone was immigrants. I woke up this morning and went on Instagram and felt my ancestors, not the only one saying this but I think it's a very important date today in American history."
Trump’s ‘indefensible’ comments just made it ‘much much harder’ for GOP to win in 2020: Ex-RNC Chair
President Donald Trump's latest anti-Semitic trope is going to make it "much much harder" for Republicans to hold control of the White House in 2020, the former chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC) explained on MSNBC on Tuesday.
Michael Steele was interviewed by MSNBC's Chris Matthews on "Hardball."
"There’s a long-respected leader of what's called Jewish Republicans, Matt Brooks -- I've known him for a long time -- this guy has the job of helping get votes, Republican votes, in the community, which generally votes Democrats," Matthews noted. "What is he going to deal with this baby, this assault on religious identity and trying to claim you must vote your group?"
Washington Post editorial board calls Trump too cowardly to pass background checks in scathing editorial
The Washington Post just published a scathing editorial saying that President Donald Trump is far too cowardly to fight for gun safety laws or any kind of gun reform.
For a brief few days, while Trump was on vacation, he was willing to say that background checks needed to be tightened. But once he was on the phone with the National Rifle Association, everything changed. It isn't the first time. When Trump promised action after the Parkland, Florida massacre he said to the faces of parents who'd just lost their children. The next day he reneged. Now Americans are back at step one, where the next shooting is around the corner and even if police are on scene to take the shooter down in less than 60 seconds, people will still die.
